The wait for a dedicated Korean fried chicken option in Tysons is over.

The chain bb.q Chicken opened its newest location this morning (Monday) at 8603 Westwood Center Drive, a company spokesperson confirmed to FFXnow.

The restaurant is located in Suite 100, which has been vacant since Side Street and Sushi Bar by I-Thai closed in 2021. The space was initially expected to be filled by Bonchon, but that Korean fried chicken chain ultimately decided not to move forward with its plans.

Other eateries in the office complex include Paisano’s Pizza, Bombay Tandoor and Grill, and the Persian restaurant Shamshiry.

Ali Sheikh, who owns bb.q Chicken’s Tysons franchise, previously told FFXnow that he looked forward to showcasing “the essence of Korean fried chicken by delivering the perfect blend of crispy, flavorful chicken paired with our signature sauces and seasonings.”

“We are excited to contribute to Vienna’s diverse food scene and become a go-to destination for Korean fried chicken enthusiasts and anyone seeking a unique and satisfying dining experience,” he said in a statement this summer.

Based in Seoul, South Korea, bb.q Chicken has more than 3,500 locations worldwide, including two other Fairfax County franchises in Centreville and Idylwood.

At the Tysons location, the chicken is halal and comes in 14 different flavors with varying levels of spiciness, from the mild original golden to the four-flame wings of fire. Other dishes include kimchi fried rice and ddeok-bokki, a street food made out of fish cakes and rice cakes.

The restaurant also serves non-alcoholic mocktails and other beverages.

Bb.q Chicken opens at 11 a.m. daily, closing at 10 p.m. on Sunday through Wednesday and at 11 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The opening gives Tysons its first standalone Korean fried chicken restaurant, though BengBeng Chicken and Grill in the Tysons Corner Center food court serves Korean chicken bites. The dish can also be found in Vienna at Chi Mc and the recently opened Oh My Dak.
